Why is it that we seem to hear more about being stressed out in these modern times than we used to? We believe that it’s because we have higher expectations of ourselves than in the past. People often feel that they are expected to achieve more at work, own a big house and be the perfect parent all at the same time. People in this position often borrow large amounts of money to be able to make such things a reality, which can put significant pressure on their lives and overall wellbeing.
The body’s stress responses are a natural mechanism designed to protect us. In prehistoric times, if we had no stress we would not have worried about the sabre-toothed tiger sitting at the mouth of the cave until it had eaten us. The body releases hormones into the bloodstream to deal with such situations and these hormones can cause an instant physical and emotional reaction often referred to as “fight or flight”.
Stress hormones are designed for use by the body but because we are all fired up like a caveperson about to run away from the sabre-toothed tiger, we often find that they are not used in the proper way. Our bodies and our minds need to rest after this surge of hormones that can give us all this extra energy, and as this is something that does not always happen in modern life, the hormones can keep on working. This often means that we have to endure the feelings of imminent danger for long periods of time with no respite- hence the feelings of stress.
